We have been finding out how to colour titanium!
We can do random with lots of colours or controlled patterns but with less colours. Getting more colours for our controlled patterns is going to cost but I think we are worth it!!!

As usual, I was busy with the class and only managed to capture a few of those lovely EUREEKA mo...

If i could give this lady, and i mean lady, a million stars i would. Viv's courses are absolutely fantastic, i myself have been attending her courses now for nearly 5 and a half years, each course is new and exciting. If you are wondering whether to attend the courses Viv runs then i would personally say 100% what are you waiting for DO IT. The courses are excellent value for money and when you come on any course you start as a learner and leave as a friend, there is a huge family-like atmosphere and even with my health conditions and disabilities, you are treated with upmost respect and as a human being, which is something not found much anywhere nowadays.
